    Great Technology company on the bleeding edge of Network Equipment design, not the greatest strategic group of leaders.

    Pros

    Working with companies designing new telecommunications equipment and the networks of the future.
    The people are great, really nice and professional.
    Compensation is very good

    Cons

    Ixia is having tough time dealing with market changes to cloud and software centric networks.
    Too many changes in direction and long term strategy
    Marketing! Yeah that's what I mean, what marketing?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Combine your two major business units or sell/split one of them off. It's like working for two different companies right now.

    Former Intern - Software Engineer Intern in Bucharest (Romania)
    Former Intern - Software Engineer Intern in Bucharest (Romania)

    I worked at Ixia as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good life-work balance, flexible hours (part-time), good salary, great, knowledgeable people.
    Really enjoyed working there, had a lot of opportunities to learn, engineers always willing to explain used concepts and frameworks.

    Cons

    Rigid, "corporatist", management(top level).
    Full time employees seem to be really stressed out, and a bit dissatisfied with current company outlook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider getting closer to their employees, allow a more direct/ honest relationship with their engineers.

    I worked at Ixia

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are competitive with other tech companies.

    Cons

    The company doesn't seem to have a long-term strategy. Hopefully the new CEO will be able to change that. The culture is mainly talk and posters - basically it's work 24/7.
